Residents in the Harts Farm Road area discovered the issue in the early hours of Monday morning and are still waiting for their water to return.

Anglian sent a ground team to investigate at around 8am, following nine reports of leaks and a number of complaints to the company.

After initially hoping the burst main would be fixed by 9pm on Monday, Anglian Water has now said disruption could last until 5pm on Tuesday.

A spokesperson said: “We’ll update this message if anything changes. Again, we’re really sorry we’ve inconvenienced you and thanks for your patience.”

The water company are asking anyone whose water is off completely to report it to their team.
